    A former stripper who is running for congress has fired back at critics by starting an OnlyFans account to help fund her campaign - after being told that would be her only option of income 'after she loses.'  Alexandra Hunt, 29, who is originally from New York, worked as an exotic dancer to help 'pay her bills' during college, but she is certainly not ashamed of her past. The former sex worker is currently running for Pennsylvania’s third congressional district as a Democratic candidate, and she has been very vocal about her past profession every step of the way - in an attempt to end the stigma around it.  Now, she has launched her own OnlyFans account to 'make honest money' and to hit back at online trolls - particularly one who told her that they 'looked forward' to seeing her on the platform after her political pursuits failed.  'Who says I have to lose an election to start an OnlyFans? There’s no shame in the OnlyFans game,' she wrote on Twitter earlier this week, alongside a screenshot of a message...
    Both Democrats and Republicans increased spending on security last year by nearly 700% as lawmakers faced an unprecedented number of threats.  Members of Congress from both parties saw a dramatic increase in security costs - both for personal protection and for cybersecurity measures.  Some of the most prominent and high-profile names in politics were its top spenders on security: Senators Mark Kelly and Ted Cruz; and Representatives Liz Cheney and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  In 2021, the campaign committees for lawmakers from both parties noted nearly $3 million for security-related spending, according to a CQ Roll Call analysis of federal election records. That's up nearly 700% over the entire 2019-2020 cycle when congressional candidates listed security-related expenses of $385,000.  The bill is expected to go up as campaigning begins in earnest ahead of the November midterm election.  Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was one of the top ten spenders on campaign security in 2021: coming in at $73,000 Republican Rep. Liz Cheney was also in top ten at $59,000 Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly of Arizona had some of the highest costs - $300,000 last year.  His...
    Former President Donald Trump claimed on Wednesday that Democrats spied on his White House and his New York City apartment as part of espionage campaign that ran after the 2016 election in an effort to undermine the 2020 vote. His wild allegations follow a court filing that has been seized on by Trump allies as proof that his opponents spied on internet traffic to gather dirt during the 2016 campaign.   It comes from Special Council John Durham's probe into the origins of an investigation into Trump campaign ties to Russia.  But tech experts say the internet data in question have little value except in highly specialized circumstances. That has not stopped Trump claiming vindication for claims he made in 2017 that Barack Obama spied on him. 'Much of the now-uncovered espionage campaign of the Democrats breaking into the White House and my New York City apartment, took place after the 2016 election as yet another way to undermine the upcoming 2020 election,' he said in one of two emailed statements sent on Wednesday evening after Hillary Clinton had dismissed the...
    Two high-profile Democratic candidates in Pennsylvania will skip President Joe Biden's visit to Pittsburgh on Friday, in the latest sign that his dire poll numbers could be disastrous in November's midterm elections. Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, a leading Senate candidate, and state Attorney General Josh Shapiro, who is likely to win the party nomination for governor, will be absent because of scheduling conflicts, their spokespeople told the Associated Press.  It is another hint that Biden is seen as a liability by candidates who would otherwise soak up the exposure and fundraising opportunities that accompany a presidential visit.  And it comes in territory Biden once thought of as his own, playing up his 'Scranton Joe' roots to win over blue collar voters. But this week, two major polls showed how far the president's support has cratered. Both Monmouth University and Harvard CAPS/Harris found that only 39 percent of voters approved of Biden's performance in office, crashing from figures of 54 and 61 percent respectively after he was sworn in. President Joe Biden will visit Pittsburgh on Friday, but two high-profile Democratic...
    Hillary Clinton's invitation to join her new presentation on "MasterClass," a video streaming platform, on the "skills" she developed throughout her career, was met with sarcasm and mockery on Wednesday. Clinton, the former secretary of state, said she hoped her lessons would arm her viewers with "passion and purpose." She also teased that she'll be sharing what would have been her 2016 presidential election speech had she emerged victorious, saying it would be a way for her to "face" her defeat "head-on." Former United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrives for the opening ceremony of the Generation Equality Forum at the Louvre Carrousel in Paris, France, June 30, 2021. REUTERS/Gonzalo Fuentes (REUTERS/Gonzalo Fuentes) HILLARY CLINTON REVEALS WOULD-BE 2016 VICTORY SPEECH AFTER BLAMING MISOGYNY, VICTORY FOR LOSS The responses overwhelmingly dripped with sarcasm. Several asked Clinton whether her class would include tips on how to wipe clean an email server, referencing her 2016 scandal that often overshadowed her campaign, while others asked if the clip was satire. More curious users wondered what she could offer to students after losing...
    Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush (R) The Daily Kos Elections Morning Digest is compiled by David Nir, Jeff Singer, Stephen Wolf, Carolyn Fiddler, and Matt Booker, with additional contributions from David Jarman, Steve Singiser, Daniel Donner, James Lambert, David Beard, and Arjun Jaikumar. Leading Off ● TX-AG: Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush, who is the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, announced Wednesday that he would attempt to unseat scandal-ridden Attorney General Ken Paxton in the Republican primary. Bush, unlike most of his family, has been a devoted Donald Trump acolyte, and he previewed just what kind of campaign he'd be running this week with, of all things, beer koozies. That swag depicted outlines of the two shaking hands above a Trump quote reading, "This is the only Bush that likes me! This is the Bush that got it right. I like him." We're guessing that the image was not drawn up by the land commissioner's uncle, the noted Dallas-based painter George W. Bush. The younger Bush, though, has much to gain in today's GOP by groveling...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The recall campaign is heating up and no stunt is off-limits. That includes one candidate bringing a 1,000-pound bear on the campaign trail.

    Mark Finchem (left) at the Arizona State Capitol in Phoenix, Arizona.Gage Skidmore/Johnny Louis/Wikimedia Commons/AP Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.A Republican member of the Arizona state legislature took more than $6,000 from the Trump campaign in December, as he was pushing fellow state lawmakers to overturn the November election results, the Arizona Republic reported Saturday. The payment to state Rep. Mark Finchem was disclosed in the Trump campaign’s latest financial disclosure, which listed the money as being paid on Dec. 18, 2020 in exchange for “recount: legal consulting.” According to the newspaper, Finchem claims the payment was a reimbursement for “crowd control and security costs” for a meeting held at a downtown Phoenix hotel Nov. 30 with the former president’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani. The payment was made to a company registered at the lawmaker’s house. Records on file with the state show the company was formed in 2008 to provide “Real Estate Sales & Management,” but it’s not clear what the...
    Donald Trump is reportedly moving forward with his plans to create a 'Patriot Party' to put pressure on Republicans who oppose him and attempt to head off conviction in his second Senate impeachment trial. Trump has told people that the third-party threat gives him leverage to prevent Republican senators from voting to convict him during the Senate trial next month, people in his orbit told the Washington Post. Since President Joe Biden took office, Trump has been ensconced at Mar-a-Lago, remaining publicly cryptic about his plans except to tell a reporter on Friday: 'We'll do something, but not just yet.'  But behind closed doors, Trump is already drafting an enemies list of Republicans who opposed his baseless claims of election fraud, instructing aids to prepare primary challenges against them, sources told the Post.

    The target of the death threats is an employee of an election technology company who has filed a defamation suit against Donald Trump’s campaign, two of the president’s lawyers, and conservative figures and the media. Eric Kumar, the defense director of the Dominion voting system, says he has been pressured to step down following allegations that his name was involved in the presidential election. In support of President-elect Joe Biden. However, there is no indication that the vote was rigged. His appeal, filed Tuesday in Denver County District Court in Colorado, was filed by Republican campaigners, attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, Conservative columnist Michael Malkin, Gateway Pundit website, Colorado Conservative activist Joseph Oldman and the New York media. “I have attracted attention from people with political and financial motives, but I am a person who cares about his privacy,” Kumar said in a statement. “Although I want to do everything I can to get my old life back, I have not disappointed myself in this matter,” he added. “Therefore, I believe today in the judicial process that has...
    Former acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney on Monday denounced President Donald Trump’s election challenges as a “PR campaign.” Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo asked Mulvaney about the issue during a segment on her show, Mornings with Maria, noting Trump’s legal challenges in Pennsylvania and the fact that his campaign has asked the state’s Supreme Court to fast-track a challenge of the election results.  “Mick, what do you make of this suit? Could this be a potential win for President Trump?” Bartiromo asked. “Potentially, sure. But I think we have to be honest with ourselves Maria, no one’s been impressed with the results of the legal up until now,” Mulvaney responded. “It’s been run mostly as a PR campaign it seems, not a serious legal inquiry.” Mulvaney predicted that Trump would continue to use every tool available while still in the Oval Office, claiming that his challenges are to be expected considering the circumstances. “I think one of the things that not enough folks are talking about though is probably the best way at this point for the president to make...
    Emails and texts sent by Trump's campaign have come under fire before for misleading donors. Donald Trump's presidential campaign continues to send frequent fundraising requests, long after the results of the 2020 presidential election have been decided and the states have certified their Electoral College votes — but why? An email sent this week by the campaign informs recipients they have "won the Weekly Trump Patriot 1000% IMPACT OFFER!" "Every week President Trump selects a TOP supporter to receive an exclusive 1000% IMPACT OFFER, and this week it's YOU," the email said, warning that the offer is only good for two hours: "After that, your offer will be given to the next Patriot in line."
    (CNN)There is a sense developing within Donald Trump's legal team and what remains of his campaign staff that their efforts to overturn or delay the results of the election are coming to an end, multiple sources tell CNN, despite what the President has said publicly.Trump said in a 46-minute video released last week that they would continue to file lawsuits, but his legal team has held fewer meetings and strategy calls in the last several days. Following the news of Rudy Giuliani's coronavirus hospitalization, staffers only speculated further that it's a matter of time before their legal efforts come to a halt completely. Giuliani is currently expected to appear via Zoom in front of a hearing with Georgia House delegates Thursday, though whether he ultimately does will depend on his condition, a source said.

    At his campaign rally on Saturday night and a month after his 2020 election loss, President Donald Trump claimed to an energetic crowd in Georgia that if he lost the election, he would be “a very gracious loser.” “If I lost, I would be a very gracious loser,” Trump stated. “If I lost, I would say ‘I lost,’ and I would go to Florida, and I would take it easy, and I would go around, and I would say I did a good job.” “But you can’t ever accept when they steal, and rig, and rob,” he continued. “You can’t accept it.” The crowd, in response to Trump, claiming he would be a fair loser, began chanting, “Stop the steal!” Watch above, via Fox News.

    The Trump campaign lost another battle Friday in their attempt to prove mass fraud in the election, something thus far they've been unable to do. This time, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals denied the campaign's request for an injunction in Pennsylvania to undo the Keystone State's certification of its votes. Trump-appointed Judge Stephanos Bibas, who wrote the opinion for the three-judge panel, said the campaign's arguments have no merit. Pennsylvania certified its election results last week, and the federal government's General Services Administration has allowed for the formal transition process to take place.  "Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. Charges of unfairness are serious. But calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here," Bibas wrote in his opinion.  Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox Specifically, the Trump campaign objected that Pennsylvania's secretary of state and some counties restricted poll watchers and allowed voters to fix technical issues with mail-in ballots. Bibas rejected those claims.  "This case is not about whether those claims...
    Appellate court rejects Trump campaign lawsuit: Calling an election unfair does not make it so
    The Five erupted over the Trump campaign’s increasingly absurd election fraud claims, with guest host Geraldo Rivera slapping down co-host Jesse Watters’ credulous repetition of nearly every baseless charge made by the president’s legal team. Just moments earlier, Watters had offered a highly sympathetic recap of a Thursday press conference led by Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, which was marked by a bizarre reenactment of My Cousin Vinny, an ominous dripping of black goo down his forehead, and numerous, outlandish conspiratorial claims that wove in Antifa, George Soros, Hugo Chavez, and the Clinton Foundation. Once Watters concluded, Rivera quickly called him out: “Come on, Jesse. I mean, really?” Watters, mocking the criticism, fired back, his voice dripping with extra sarcasm: “COME ON, GERALDO!” “The Clinton Foundation, George Soros, Hugo Chavez,” Rivera said, ticking off the many absurd layers of baseless fraud plot pushed by the Trump campaign. “I’m probably the only person in the building that’s actually met Hugo Chavez.” “I didn’t say anything about that,” Watters protested, trying to distance himself from the clearly fanciful portions of the president’s legal strategy to overturn the election...
    Donald Trump on Saturday night announced the five lawyers who would form his 'truly great team' and contest the results of the election. The day after a series of damaging defeats in Pennsylvania, Arizona and Michigan, Trump announced the appointment of five people to take on his floundering legal strategy. Among them were a husband and wife duo famed for appearing on Fox News to promote Ukraine conspiracy theories, a lawyer who represented disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, and an evangelical who says that she believes law is her 'ministry'. 'I look forward to Mayor Giuliani spearheading the legal effort to defend OUR RIGHT to FREE and FAIR ELECTIONS!' Trump tweeted. 'Rudy Giuliani, Joseph diGenova, Victoria Toensing, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis, a truly great team, added to our other wonderful lawyers and representatives!' Joseph diGenova and wife Victoria Toensing have been added to Trump's legal team Jenna Ellis, a Trump campaign lawyer, will also now represent him in election fraud fights Sidney Powell, who represents Michael Flynn, is also joining the legal team ...
